Office of Fiscal Administration

 As a precautionary response to COVID-19, Ohio EPA is currently operating with most staff working remotely. If you are working with our staff on a current project and you know the name of the employee you are working with, email them at or call them directly. The Agency website has contact information for every district, division, and office. In order to reach us, please contact Ohio EPA’s main phone line at (614) 644-3020 or the main line for the division or office you are trying to reach.

After March 23, our district offices and Central Office will be temporarily closed and will have increasingly limited ability to receive deliveries, plans, etc. All entities are encouraged to submit plans, permit applications, etc., electronically where there are existing avenues to do so, such as the eBusiness Center (eBiz). Please refer to the list of available services on the main eBiz webpage. We encourage you to make use of all that apply, even if you have not used eBiz in the past. Plans under 25 MB can be emailed. For large plans over 25 MB, entities should work with the reviewer/division to upload via LiquidFiles. Directions for submitting docs via LiquidFiles is available on YouTube. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding. If you wish to send hard copies of documents to any of Ohio EPA’s district offices, the best method to ensure we receive these documents is to send them via U.S. Mail. Since all offices are closed, deliveries outside of U.S. Mail (FedEx, UPS) will likely be returned because the offices are closed and deliveries cannot be made.

To report a spill or environmental emergency, contact the spill hotline (800) 282-9378 or (614) 224-0946

Fiscal Administration

The Office of Fiscal Administration provides fiscal services to the Agency including purchasing, accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, grants administration, budgeting, economic analysis and audit coordination. The office also publishes Sewer and Water Rate Surveys that show residential rates for these services throughout Ohio.



Most invoices issued by Ohio EPA may be paid through our online eBusiness Center with a credit card or by debiting your bank account through the Automated Clearing House (ACH). Payments will appear on your statement with identifiable merchant names based on the type of service provided. read more...

  • Automated Clearing House – There is no service fee for ACH payments. ACH payments do require an Ohio EPA eBusiness Center Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you have a PIN for another eBusiness Center service, that same PIN may be used to pay by ACH. If you do not have a PIN, one may be obtained now by verifying your identification in the eBusiness Center.
  • MasterCard, VISA or Discover Credit Card - A service fee of 1.9% of the total amount owed will be charged for payments made by credit card.

Sewer and Water Rate Survey

The Economic Analysis Unit annually surveys sewer and water rates charged by Ohio cities, villages and special districts during the prior calendar year. Annual rates are calculated for residential customers within municipal limits given an assumed monthly water consumption level of 7,756 gallons (or 1,037 cubic feet) per household. Rate calculations do not include charges levied through income or property taxes.

Is your community missing from the survey? Do you have a question for the next survey? Contact Charles Branch to join our survey or suggest a question. To request Sewer and Water Rate Surveys dated prior to year 2003 please email our office.
